  • Austrian Corporate Governance Codex
    The Austrian Corporate Governance Codex became effective in October 2002. The Codex provides Austrian stock corporations (Aktiengesellschaften) with a framework for management and control.

    The Codex is based on the provisions of Austrian stock corporation, stock exchange, and capital market law, the EU recommendations on the tasks of the members of the supervisory board and the remuneration of directors, as well as the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. Since 2002, the Codex has undergone a number of revisions. The latest amendment was made in January 2020. Companies voluntarily undertake to adhere to the Codex.

    The Codex aims to establish a system of management and control of companies and groups that is accountable and geared to create sustainable, long-term value. It is designed to increase the degree of transparency for all stakeholders of a company.
